Korea Meteorological Administration to observe air quality in the West Sea'서해상 대기질 입체관층망 운영'

[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Korea Meteorological Administration announced that it would start air quality three-dimensional observations in order to investigate the characteristics and route of pollutants flowing into Korea for two months from April 18, using weather aircraft, ship, and the ground monitoring network off the coast from Incheon to Mokpo.

The West Sea has been selected as the target, because the geographical characteristic of the Sea is the main channel for the inflow of air pollutants such as fine dust generated in neighboring countries.

The Korea Meteorological Administration plans to analyze the characteristics of changes in the source and long-distance travel patterns of fine dust in Korea based on the three-dimensional observation, and to improve the predicting capability of the forecasting model by using it.

"As people’s interest has increased because of the frequent yellow dust and fine dust recently, we will continue to study the influence of long-distance moving substances and domestic air quality through the observations of air quality in the West Sea, and we will improve the prediction accuracy," said Nam Jae-chul, the head of the Meteorological Administration.
